Lovely write, Henry David Thoreau. Too bad you're not here to enjoy your comments in the 21st Century!
'Love cannot speak, But only thinks and does.' Love is an action word, and love is shown by deeds. Wise Mr. Thoreau recognised this back in the 1800's! Saving this gem to my Favourite Poems list.
As a poet, Thoreau is underrated, overshadowed by his famous prose works. Oh, well, fame is fame, but he's also a great exponent of good old American 'adhesiveness' and a fine technician, to boot. Obviously a Latinist.
But only when these three together meet,
As they always incline,
And make one soul the seat,
And favorite retreat,
A beautiful poem so nicely crafted on alphabets of friendship.
10 for it.
Oh! what a poem on friendship truly superb admiring great qualities, and glories in the friendship between and that friendship like ours admits of no reserves and claims of love cannot surely obliterate those of friendship! and with their roots undermined down to their deepest source as are intertwined inseparably......
very well crafted.....thanks for sharing
